    Not finding a tree coin eats away at me badly man. I couldnít imagine how it feels after having found one, besides your stories. Lol

    It only beats my oldest find by over 200 years, yawwnnn. Really, this is no joking matter, because that is a banner find all day, regardless of what the rule book says. A big welcome and a big congrats!

    Thanks again everyone. As far as Banner goes ( had to ask a friend what it was) I guess rules are rules. Iím good with it.
    I am close to retiring, but still work lots of hours. I would not have even got around to posting this find ( believe it or not ) except for the urging of a friend to put it out here.
    Glad I did. Donít know how or if I will be ever able to top this first post. But we can always dream right? Thanks again.
    It happened to me... it CAN happen to you!

    Better focus on new pics. The other coin is an 1883 20 Reis from Portugal found about 20 minutes before I dug the Tree coin. Considering the type of day that I was having up until then, any find would have been good for me. This coin, which is the size of a half dollar gave a very choppy/ mixed signal. Also down about 10"-12", there was enough of a high tone and the numbers, though not really locking onto anything consistent looked good enough. I decided to dig. Coin in the hole, I was thrilled! I thought, No being Skunked today. So, very satisfied, I started working my way back to the path to the parking lot. That is when I got a really sweet high tone in both directions at 10"-12". I checked it in the open screen. Still no iron grunt. A cinch decision to dig it. I popped out a good size plug and at the bottom of the hole I saw silver! It was lying flat. I picked it up and as I brought it into view, the first thing I saw was 1652!!
    I let out a yell. Glenn, who was about 100' away looked up and asked; Anything good I yelled out TREE COIN!!!! Another friend who was a good distance away saw Glenn sprinting over to me. At the same time he observed me doing what turned out to be a Tree Coin dance. (On a find like this a little dance is acceptable) What a great day! I will NEVER forget that feeling... And you guys are right... the thirst to find another on IS strong! LOL You NEVER know....Click image for larger version.
